API (Application Programming Interface)

Application Programming Interface (API) is a programming layer that allows different software applications to communicate with each other. APIs provide a way for developers to access the functionality of one piece of software, such as a web service, and use that functionality in another application. 

APIs play a vital role in supporting the integration of different software systems and facilitating the flow of data between them. Technical writers create documentation on how to use and API, so it’s important to understand the functionality, parameters, and usage of an API. Heretto authors can incorporate comprehensive API documentation and testing capabilities directly into the Heretto Deploy Portal.
